Event Summary:

IPFA Middle East FLN: Dubai: Being a Leader of Tomorrow

Please note that this event now has a waiting list.

In an increasingly competitive professional environment, career progression for junior professionals requires careful navigation. IPFA's inaugural Middle East FLN event, hosted by Herbert Smith Freehills LLP, aims to give guidance to its junior members on a broad range of topics related to how best to approach advancing through the various professions within the project finance space. A panel of experts from a variety of backgrounds will discuss their experiences and share war stories, covering advice on (for example) client care, networking, and progressing to more senior roles.
The panel session will be held at the Ritz-Carlton in the Dubai International Financial Centre from 5:30pm on Wednesday 31 October 2018, and will be followed by a drinks reception in the hotel's Sunken Garden venue.

IPFA's FLN sessions are specifically aimed at junior/mid-tier members of IPFA, providing an opportunity to network and keep up to date with the latest market developments in the project finance sector.
